In 1983, an Assembly of God youth pastor in Florida asked some of his kids to form a band and put on a concert for their youth group. Before long this youth group band would include people of great fame and notoriety who would give great witness of what God had done in their lives. Lead singer Rocco Marshall’s long-time friend, Leon Wilkeson (bassist from The Lynyrd Skynyrd Band) joined the band. Before long, Leon’s Skynyrd bandmate, pianist Billy Powell was in jail for a 5th DUI and he asked Leon to visit him. Leon played Billy a VISION song called “Fight the Good Fight”. The song had such a powerful effect on Billy that he immediately joined the band!

VISION now had an impressive pedigree, featuring two members of mainstream rock super-stars, Lynyrd Skynyrd! By 1984 the band would record their debut record as a custom self-titled release (now titled Mountain In The Sky, recorded in world renown guitarist Pat Travers’ studio with the Full Sail Dream Machine. With no distribution or promotion this ’84 release has been ultra rare and collectors have been willing to pay hundreds of dollars for this classic rock masterpiece. The album is 9 songs of wall-to -wall brilliance – chock full of explosive vocal arrangements and indelible guitar riffs. Clearly cut from the Seventies, (Kansas, Boston, Blue Oyster Cult) VISION knew how to bring it with infectious hooks, marked progressive rock edges, and a huge, biting, melodic guitar attack full of hope-filled lyrics that cut to the heart! The Collector’s Edition exclusive bonus tracks for the Born Twice Records release are two powerful testimonies from Leon and Billy, sharing from their hearts about the difference God made in their lives. This super-star studded band would go on to release a second album on Heartland Records in 1985 featuring several songs from Mountain In The Sky that were completely re-recorded (and quite different) for that album. In the words of HM Magazine editor, Doug Van Pelt (who contributes special liner notes in the reissue, “I’m confident that, like me, you’ll be really glad to hold this CD in your hands right now. It’s re-release-worthy classic material, indeed.”
